November 27 is #GivingTuesday!
What is GivingTuesday? Founded in 2012, GivingTuesday is a global giving movement being celebrated in more than 190 countries across the globe, and with more than 200 local community campaigns, including more than 40 in Canada. It is a global giving movement with local impact harnessing the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesdayCa and #VanGives demonstrate how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
@CoDevCanada invites you to be a part of #GivingTuesdayCa and #VanGives with our Give Ten on Tuesday Campaign. We call it #GivingTuesdayCa – not fundraising Tuesday – for a reason. It’s a day to inspire generosity in all forms, a day for people to generously share whatever they can, whether it is their time, skills, voice, or money. So, you can give 10 minutes of your time by buying a bag of Café Etico or calling a friend to encourage them to do so, or better yet convince them to become a member! You can commit to 10 days of volunteer work in 2019. We always need help around the holidays, prepping for our Holiday Open House, or helping with our Annual Fundraising Dinner in June, or helping to spread the word at any number of union tabling events! Or, you can donate $10 outright, add $10 to your monthly donation, increase your membership donation by $10, or find your own creative way to express your commitment to the @CoDevCanada community. Whatever you choose, know that your contribution of time, skills, or money is appreciated by @CoDevCanada more than we can say.
Your support means that we can continue our work building partnerships for global justice well into the future. Watch this space as we tell you more about this vital work.
